3/5 Okay

Balafon is een mooi resort
We hadden vier kamers geboekt bij Balafon. Dit was overboekt en daarom kregen we één kamer in Djembé. Deze kamer was totaal niet vergelijkbaar met de kamer van het het Balafon resort. Bij de receptie gevraagd of we dit konden wijzigen maar dat was niet mogelijk.
